Linda A. Simon, age 57, passed away peacefully and comfortably at her home in West Chester, Pennsylvania on February 21, 2019 after her courageous four-year battle against inflammatory breast cancer.
Linda was born on August 12, 1961 in McKeesport, PA to Robert E. Simon and Phyllis J. Pace. She was raised in Chadds Ford, PA where she graduated from Unionville High School. Much of Linda’s work throughout her life was spent selflessly serving her local community. For over 25 years she worked as a Dining Services Manager at Kendal-Crosslands preparing meals for hundreds.
Though Linda’s real life’s work was done in the time she wasn’t working. She devoted all her attention to her family and friends. Linda treasured every moment with those close to her. Countless photos and mementos in her home show how important those around her were and the smiles and laughter she shared with them. Linda’s love and energy were unequaled, her support and friendship were irreplaceable, and her bravery and courage will live on as her legacy.
Linda Simon is preceded in death by her father, Robert Simon, and her mother, Phyllis Pace. She is survived by partner Cindy Meers; older brother and wife, Ken and Dawn Simon; younger sister and husband, Lisa and Jim Hicks; her four nephews, Robert Hicks, Kyle Hicks, Matt Murray and Jody Murray; and so many more she loved and cherished dearly.
